California Gold Rush town to remove noose from city logo

This image from the City of Placerville's Facebook page shows the town's logo that includes a noose. The California Gold Rush town of Placerville will change its logo to remove a noose that stems from its mid-19th century reputation as "Hangtown" following lynchings of criminal suspects by mobs of miners. The City Council voted this month to remove the noose after listening to emotional comment from residents. (City of Placerville/Facebook via AP)
